Regional Climate Diplomacy Forum 2022 [Webinar]

featuring Ebony Bennett and Richie Merzian

Pacific Island nations are on the front line of climate change, and as Australia celebrates the passage of the 43% climate bill, Pacific leaders want to know that the new Australian Government’s improved rhetoric on climate is matched by policy integrity when it comes to new gas and coal projects and exports.

Join Their Excellencies Anote Tong, former President of Kiribati and Tommy E. Remengesau Jr., former President of Palau for the Regional Climate Diplomacy Forum. Hosted in partnership with the Pacific Elders Voice and the Edmund Rice Centre.

This was recorded on Tuesday 13th September 2022 and things may have changed since recording.
